What type of guitar lessons do you offer?
Guitar is a very popular instrument. At our Sherman Oaks / Los Angeles music lessons studio, we offer guitar lessons on acoustic, classical, electric and bass guitar. We also offer a variety of guitar styles including, rock, metal, jazz, country, bluegrass, pop and more. You will find our studio to be a clean, state of the art music lessons studio. Our guitar teachers are university trained working music professionals that love to teach. They are well versed at teaching music theory and proper guitar technique in all styles from Bach to Rock.
We offer private guitar lessons in 30 minute, 45 minute or 1 hour classes at our Sherman Oaks studio in Los Angeles.
Over the years we have found the combination of a weekly private guitar lesson and weekly band rehearsals are very motivating to our students.
We also have our popular Join the Band® program that guitar students can join to play in a real band setting.
What is a good starting age for kids to take guitar lessons?
Eight to nine years old is the youngest we recommend for guitar lessons. Though we do take it case by case. Because of their smaller hands, the physical part of holding the guitar neck, pushing down strings with their fingertips, and holding a pick can very difficult for young children. We do have kids as young as six years old taking guitar lessons but we prefer to evaluate them first at the music studio.
Do you offer guitar lessons for teens and adults?
Yes, we have many teen and adult guitar students at Join the Band. If you are a beginner we have a great staff guitar teachers to get you playing faster. Our teachers also have many teen and adult guitar students at an intermediate and advanced level. Whether you are playing acoustic, electric or classical guitar, we have the right teachers for you. If you are starting lessons for the first time or you just need to hone your skills, our qualified staff of guitar teachers can customize a guitar lesson plan just for you.
I’m left handed. Can you still offer me guitar lessons?
Yes, our teachers can give you guitar lessons if you are left handed. However, if are new to guitar lessons and are left handed, choosing to play left handed or right handed is an important choice. Please keep in mind that they do not make left handed pianos, saxophones, flutes, etc…and many “left handed” people play these instruments all the time. Plus your choice of guitars is much greater if you learn to play “right handed”. Before you choose, we suggest coming in for an evaluation. One of our guitar teachers can give you guidance in making the right choice.
When can I start my guitar lessons?
At Join the Band we offer year guitar lessons year round. Fall, Winter, Spring & Summer are all popular times of the year to start lessons. Fall, Winter and Spring lessons adds a valuable music lesson to your child’s school year. Summer guitar lessons are a fun way to keep kids busy while school is out.
